Today's honoree is newly elected sheriff in Morris County, Jim Gannon. Given the negative climate pushed by the media regarding law enforcement and the tough job law enforcement members face daily, we're going to continue #BlueFriday as long as I'm on the air.

Jim is another one of our local NJ heroes focusing his new role on combating heroin addiction, keeping people and businesses in the county safe from violence and crime and protecting seniors from fraud. He's a graduate of the FBI National Academy and has served with distinction in law enforcement and security for more than three decades. We're proud to have him honored today.
